Excerpt from ‘Cynocephalus’ by Nicolas Calas (The Elena and Nicolas Calas archive, Nordic Library at Athens)

The workshops will address practicing artists, students, and scholars. Based on a series of seminars, the workshop participants will be invited to produce work consulting the Hellenic Literary and Historical Archive of the Cultural Foundation of the National Banκ of Greece (ELIA-ΜΙΕΤ) and the Elena and Nicolas Calas archive held in The Nordic Library in Athens. The workshops aim to investigate relations and unexplored connections in Calas’s work focusing on questions of art and politics, word and image relations.
